The national carrier of the State of Qatar will operate a daily service to Riyadh on wide-body aircrafts including the Airbus A350, Boeing 777-300 and Boeing 787-8

Qatar Airways has resumed flights to Riyadh in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with a daily service. QR1164 from Hamad International Airport to King Khalid International Airport took off in Doha at 13:45 local time and landed safely at its destination at 15:10. The flight was operated by Qatar Airways’ Airbus A350-1000.

A multiple award-winning airline, Qatar Airways is the only airline to have been awarded the coveted “Skytrax Airline of the Year” title a handful of times

The national carrier of the State of Qatar continues to rebuild its network, which currently stands at more than 110 destinations with plans to increase to over 125 by the end of March 2021. A multiple award-winning airline, Qatar Airways was named “World’s Best Airline” by the 2019 World Airline Awards, managed by Skytrax. It is the only airline to have been awarded the coveted “Skytrax Airline of the Year” title, which is recognized as the pinnacle of excellence in the airline industry, five times.

Hamad International Airport (HIA), the airline’s home and hub, was ranked “Third Best Airport in the World,” among 550 airports worldwide, by the Skytrax World Airport Awards 2020. Rising from fourth position in 2019 to third in 2020, HIA has been steadily rising in the ‘World's Best Airports’ rankings since the start of its operations in 2014.
